>You said using a NIE was the "primary method," does that mean there are other methods? And although you say that not having an NIE wouldn't let someone recover damages.

Yes, there WERE other relevant methods of providing reliance parties with your intent to enforce, read the statute. The only really practical one was to file an NIE.

If you did not use one of these statutory methods to re-assert your rights in films that had already passed into the public domain in the United States, then your film remains public domain. The window to meet these statutory requirements is over.
